K-9 Detection Teams: It Work
ProTech Pest Control is proud to be the employer of Inspector Marlowe and Inspector Roxy – The Metro Area’s ONLY “World Detector Dog Organization” Certified Termite and Bed Bug Detection K-9 Teams!
Marlowe, Roxy, and their handlers have undergone thousands of hours of training demonstrating their ability and accuracy in detecting termites and bed bugs. They are powerful new weapons against these destructive pests and vital members of ProTech’s team of inspectors. Marlowe can inspect and locate termites in places that human inspectors cannot. He can detect termites behind walls, under floors, beneath the soil, and otherwise inaccessible areas of a home or commercial building. Roxy can inspect more accurately and in a fraction of the time as a human inspector because she doesn’t need to remove clutter and can easily move under beds and furniture.
